This young woman and her partner have just moved into an unfurnished housing association property. She is pregnant and expecting her first child in April, but they are struggling to purchase essential items for their new home from her Income Support and his part-time wages. They are in urgent need of a fridge freezer so they can safely store food items, so I am hoping that you can help.
J is a single parent of 2 children. Her fencing fell down in the recent winds and is in desperate need to be fixed. She has a large garden and we would like to be able to fix the fencing and make the whole garden more low maintenance for her to maintain in the long term. She has no other means of getting the money to do this work but with local contacts we can spend the money on the fencing equipment we need to buy and put in the manpower to make it a safe and secure place for this family.
This young woman, who is the lone parent of a 3 year old and a 1 year old, has just moved into a council tenancy after she was made homeless following a relationship breakdown. She is in receipt of Income Support and child related benefits and would benefit greatly from a washing machine as she struggles to access a laundrette. As she doesn't have the means to buy one, I am hoping that you may be able to help.
This 57 year old man spent a short time in prison and during this period he lost both his tenancy and his household goods. When he was released, he became hostel homeless and has now obtained a council flat. He worked for 11 years in retail and hopes to work again, but is currently receiving jobseekers allowance. A local charity has helped him out with a gas cooker, but he also needs a reconditioned fridge freezer. £100 would cover the cost and he would very grateful for any help with this.
Please can you donate to a dishwasher for a single Dad and his 6 children. The family are suffering from a significant amount of grief having lost their Mum. A dishwasher would be one major thing that would really help them to move forward well and be able to cope with the day to day pressures of being a part of a large family.
We are supporting a Mum and her young son who have recently been rehoused after a serious incident with her ex-partner. They have had to leave lots of their belongings behind but Mum is really down as there is no carpet in the house. She is particularly anxious to sort her son’s room as priority and make it homely for him.
This client has been living at the hostel for the last two weeks following a relationship breakdown, but the family are now moving into their own council tenancy. The client has applied for Jobseekers Allowance and a Community Support Grant but both of these applications will take several weeks to process. In the meantime, all four of her children are in urgent need of beds which she cannot afford to purchase. I am hoping that you can help by covering the cost of a bed for one of the children.
'N' needs his electric meter topping up. He uses electricity for heating, shower, microwave and TV. He receives Job Seekers Allowance but due to rent and bills he does not have enough income at the moment to top up the meter. He has mental health issues and a chest infection at the moment. He is struggling at this time. Thank you
K is a single parent with two boys. She has been in debt for many years. She has returned to work part time and has debts she just cannot afford to repay. A Dro will mean she can clear these debts and concentrate on sticking to her budget and going forward. She has no way of saving for the £90 as she lives on a very tight budget. Please consider helping this family to be relieved from the burden of debt.
